Da Website

I've had "get fixed up" on the Too Much To Do list for some time now, and last night's flurry of "Testing, testing!" is part of that. My general plan is for to be my "I Are Actual Writer!" site, while the good ol' LJ account will be more of my daily ramblings. To that end I've been trying to settle on a design that is clean and functional but suits my personality (or at least my "writerly persona," which hopefully isn't too far afield from my actual personality). It will also be a central connection for my wide array of scattered sites and interests. Your One Stop Gneech Shop, so to speak, for anybody who may be in the market for Gneeches.

It still needs some sprucing up to give it a bit more personality ... if nothing else it needs a typewriter on it 'cause dangit, I love typewriters. It also needs to have some of the missing content folded back in (particularly my bibliography).

One other major piece that needs to be put into place is that the Brigid and Greg Fictionlets are going to move over there. (Sorry, tr_wolf, they'll still appear here, too.) That's going to be something that requires doing in increments over time, just because there are so many Fictionlets now, but as I write new ones they're going to be "native" over there.

I have the site set up so that any posts I make there will echo over here, so if you've been reading the Fictionlets on your friends page and want to keep on doing so, you're set to go. However, if you're only interested in my writing and don't care about things like my search for a cellphone or how the cats or doing (or whatever), you can follow's RSS feed to get the business end of my writing updates.

As I've said, the site is still a work in progress, so if you have any suggestions or requests, I'd love to hear 'em.

Writer's Block: Search for intelligent life

Do you believe there is other intelligent life in distant galaxies? If no, why not? If yes, do you believe this is something to be feared and avoided or actively sought out?

I certainly suspect there is, but without some heavy-duty changes in our understanding of physics, I don't expect us to ever really know.

Heck, the chances of us stumbling on intelligent life in our OWN galaxy are pretty darn remote. Space is very, very big and very, very empty.

And We Have Website!

Ladies and gentlemen, 3.0 (for lack of a better term) is on the air! Here is where I’ll be posting stories, reflections on writing, RPG materials, new projects I may have in the works, and so on. If you’re already a follower of my LiveJournal, posts made here will be echoed there, so you don’t have to change anything. As time goes on, however, I expect the LJ to be more of a home for daily ramblings about my personal life, internet memes, or other flotsam and jetsam, whereas this site will be more oriented to what you might call the “business end” of my keyboard. And while my prose has been more or less on “the back burner” for the past several years as I concentrated on my webcomics, this year I will be picking up the slack. I’ve already got two novels under various levels of construction and am casting around for markets for other works, so I hope to have a lot of news to post here as the year goes on.

If you’re new to my work, welcome aboard! I recommend you start with the Stories, there’s some good stuff there! The Fictionlets alone should keep you going for a while! Or, if you’re more interested in comics, you might enjoy The Suburban Jungle (Starring Tiffany Tiger) or NeverNever.

Finally, if you’re trying to reach me about something, you can leave a comment on this post via the link at the bottom, or e-mail me directly.
